Or Ho-Ho's, Ding-Dong's, Suzy-Q's or my fav as a kid, Fruit Pies (apple), you better hoof it on down to as many supermarkets as you can. Pronto! Shoot (please don't), go for the Hostess delivery truck. I'm sure the route driver is willing to make a deal as they will soon be out of a job. A part of Americana is going, going ...

Everyone has a twinkie clip: Hitler, RikkiBobby, Zombies. Who knew 'zombie twinkie' was a colloquialism.

As a side note, I've always wondered if Chuck Berry named the particular snacks.

Thanks for the link. A real popular cupcake. When craving for snacks, the first thing that comes up with my mind is that I want to buy Twinkies. I know that a number of people were concerned when Hostess went out of business that they would not be able to get [url=http://personalmoneynetwork.com/moneyblog/2013/03/17/twinkies/]Twinkies[/url] anymore. A new announcement from Hostess was just made that Twinkies and other snacks have been sold to another company. This means you can get to buy a snack food whenever you are craving it now.

And who of a certain age can ever forget the Twinkie defense that Dan White used in his trial for wasting George Moscone and Harvey Milk. Helped get him manslaughter instead of murder. I was living in the Bay area at that time. There was a Hostess factory in downtown SF with a big billboard pushing Twinkies. Someone sneaked up after the trial and graffitied it: Be a man - kill someone - eat a Twinkie. Ya couldn't miss it from the freeway. Ah memories!

For all the levity in this thread, let us not forget the 18,000 who are now jobless. And sadly, it is just another case of fat-cat corporate types and fat-cat union types playing with the lives of American workers in yet another "My dick is bigger than yours" schoolyard mashup that injures no one except the innocent.

On the corporate side, "We can definitely hold out long enough. Those workers will have to go back to work to feed their families." All the while, the company execs are getting paid.

And on the union side, "Don't let those corporate prick fool you. You've got them by the short and curlies. They've got to give in to our demands. What else can they do?" All the while, the union execs are getting paid.

If the company is not in a "Right to work" state, union members have no choice but to "stick with the union"(Which in Woody Guthrie's day was smart thing to, but now is a questionable decision.)

Are those 6 figure corporate bosses gonna feed the children of the out of work Hostess employees? I don't think so.

Are those 6 figure union bosses gonna feed the children of the out of work Hostess employees? I don't think so.

Sorry for the rant. I'll be quiet now.

just an addendum to the rant.... the CEO got a 300% pay raise, the union got squat.

Fear not, just as one part of Americana slips away, another part is getting turbocharged.

Cracker Jack'd?

What's next? Jiffy-Popped (along with a picture of posthumous spokesmen Big E Smalls and 2-Pac)? The mind boggles.

And, of course, Sno-Capped. The tasty movie-house treat now infused with a hint of gunpowder.

Sure why not after all they are not marketing this to kids.

A Frito-Lay spokesperson told Ad Age: "Cracker Jack’d is a product line specifically developed for adult consumers and will not be marketed to children. All marketing for the products will be exclusively aimed at adult consumers, and the package design and appearance are wholly different from Cracker Jack to ensure there is no confusion among consumers."

Riiiiiiiiight.

Just like Camel's "Joe Cool" was entirely aimed at enticing the mature consumer.

And what had to be my all-time favorite candy: bubble-gum cigarettes. "Look real cool to your friends while you rot your teeth and increase the risk of juvenile diabetes!!!

And how right you are my dadaist fellow forumite. Alas, no drink or drug, lack of sleep or recent blow to the head to foist some of the blame onto- just my pure stupidity.

I shall begin my walk of shame.

Zingers? I ain't worried 'bout no stinkin' Zingers. Cinnamon Strrusel Coffee Cake is as addictive as black tar herion.

That's because you're thinking of plain old Zingers. But what about Raspberry Zingers? Hmmm? The absolute BEST. Plus they probably glow in the dark. I don't think I've had any for over 30 years, but I'm sure they taste the same. Heck, the same ones are probably still around. And as edible as ever!

The raspberry Zingers are almost as addictive as the coffee cakes. I gave them up years ago and have been afraid to eat one since. One bite and I'll be back on those glow in the dark, coconut covered monsters.

If "they" ever go after Cap'n Crunch Crunchberries I will personally lead the revolution.

Let's hear it for high fructose corn syrup - making American kids bat fastards since 1974.
